The Miami Hurricanes played their spring game on Saturday, but there was even bigger news prior to it when the school unveiled a new look for the football team.
Before the defense took the spring game 61-60, the Hurricanes stood on the field at Sun-Life Stadium and gave the world a view of how they will take the field going forward. In all, there are four overall uniforms and they are named "Juice," "Storm Trooper," "Surge" and "Smoke".
"Juice" is an all-orange home look on the torso and legs along with green sleeves. Present on the sleeves is the beak of the Ibis mascot. Incorporating the Ibis into the new look appears to have been a priority. "Storm Trooper" as can be expected is an all-white look for away games. The Ibis logo can be found on the sleeves here as well. "Surge" and "Smoke" are two alternate uniforms for the school. The former is all-green while the latter is an all-gray look. Once again the Ibis logo can prominently be seen on the sleeves.
It was announced back in February that the Hurricanes would be donning new threads, but details were kept secret until the unveiling. The change is major and noticeable, but it also pays tribute to the previous look. The new uniforms were designed by Nike with input from Hurricanes' coach Al Golden, equipment manager David Case, and athletic director Blake James, according to The Miami Herald.
“The uniform comes at the right time for the right team,” Golden told the Herald. “These young men, who unselfishly guided us through some very dark days, now display a renewed attitude and spirit! These new uniforms capture that outlook."
The new look will be available to purchase by the public in early July.
